Small receipts of live stock began to arrive here last Thurs day , and tbere was a pretty good run on Friday. Rains west of us late last week kept the rivers here in a threatening state , and above thedanger line. This has held down the run today , which amounts to 8000 cattle , 5500 hogs and 3000 sheep. There was a big break in cattle prices at all the markets last week , account of liberal supplies , especially ot quarantine cattle. The daily newspapers in the big cities all over the country have exploited the high price oi beef lately to such an extent that consumption has been greatly curtailed , which together with the heavy runs , put buyers in a position to ham mer the market successfully. Prices are steady to 10 lower to day , and whereas a top of SS.OO or better would have been pos sible a week ago for fancy steers , § 7.00 would be about the limit today. Sales of steers ranged from So.25 to $0.90 here today. Cows and heifers are also lower today at $3.00 to $ fi.50. The hog market opened five higher , but improved up to the close , when sales nveraged 15 higher , top $5.90 , bulk $5.70 to $5.85. Qual ity of sheep is not very good to day , market slow , choice spring lambs worth S6.50 , muttons S-1.00 to $5.25. The stock yards , with the exception of the quarnntiue cnttle yards , are in as good coudi- tiou as before the flood , nnd all the facilities for handling stock nre in use. The quarantine cattle yards will be in operation in a few days , if the rivers continue to fall. With the exception of the Morris plant , all the packing houses are in oper ation and will be able to produce their usual output within a day or two. Morris & Co. are buying live slock for shipment to their plants at other points. All the railroads out of Kansas City are open and outside order buyers are in the market the same as before the flood. Just a Kick. It seems now from the results of approved appraisement that a man's property is worth more than he is willing to sell it for and that the county commissioner's do not agree with the market valuation , which is set by the owner. There are some pieces of property around town which have really and truly tried to be sold for several hun dreds of dollars less than the ap praisement but the August body of commissioners have decided that the property owner is mif. taken and that he should have more money and the property is taxed accordingly. Of course this is alright from a taxable standpoint bnt the property own er doesn't understand it. Per haps he will in time. Nebraska City Press.
